Update on the car show from Don Roy

Chicopee Savings, along with being the car show’s major sponsor, has also stepped up and donated the bags for the first 100 registered participants.  Thanks goes out to Kathi Donahue for making that happen.

Jason Ouellette and John Michon are working on collecting items to fill the ‘goodie bags’ mentioned above. They will need 100 of each item and they are looking for items somewhat relevant to a car enthusiast.

Tom Foley is organizing the raffle this year.  We have not had a good response yet. If anyone is willing to donate a raffle prize please email Tom at tfoley@pieciak.com or talk to him at a future meeting. We need raffle prizes!

Ray suggested someone contact Distinctive Marketing as they are going out of business and might be liquidating their supplies.

Sponsorships are in good shape and continue to roll in.
